This “Coaching Conversation” will be centered around the concepts of “fixed” and “growth” mindsets as introduced in the book “Mindset: The New Psychology of Success” by Carol Dweck and how they relate to the coach-client relationship.

The author points out that are many implications of a growth or fixed mindset. For example, perceptions about risk and effort come from our mindset. People with a growth mindset understand the value of challenging themselves and will want to put in the effort to learn and grow. People with a fixed mindset will often avoid the effort and feel that it doesn’t matter. There are also implications regarding the mindset of the coach and what they bring to the table. This session will offer participants the opportunity to explore the mindset concepts through lively discussion and for sharing coaching experiences when a mindset consideration has led to outcomes that were either successful or not so successful.

Participants will learn:

  1. The Differences between a fixed & growth mindset
  2. How to Recognize one’s mindset
  3. Strategies for effective coaching for each mindset type
  4. The power of “Not Yet”
